For the last five years my cousin has been operating a hair salon here in the city. While it started off slow, her clientele has grown steadily and she has a thriving business. It has been a joy watching her grow from a one woman show to employing six stylists.
It has been quite the journey.
I thought that I would get her a little something to commemorate her success and celebrate her journey as an entrepreneur. But what do you get a business owner? I really had to think long and hard to come up with something that would work well for her.
After much brainstorming, I decided to get her something that was useful and practical. I bought her some new barbers & stylists aprons that matched the colors of her shop and I am going to get her logo emblazoned on them. I figured that it made the most sense to get her something that her and her staff could use, and aprons really made the most sense.
I can’t wait to see them.
I’m hoping to give them to her next week when we have our bi-monthly business meeting. I hope that she is happy with the gift – she has done a lot for someone that is so young.
